01-07-2024 – VSTEP has installed a CESNI certified NAUTIS Inland Simulator at TMLG, aiming to enhance simulation-based learning not only in Slovakia but throughout the entire region.  

At the Maritime Industry 2023 in The Netherlands, TMLG, a reputable fleet owner and shipping company based in Slovakia, signed a letter of intent to purchase the NAUTIS Inland Simulator from VSTEP.  

This strategic collaboration is of significant importance not only for TMLG but also for its neighboring countries, as they too will benefit from the advanced capabilities of the NAUTIS simulator. For VSTEP, this partnership holds strategic value too as TMLG is our first inland client focusing on the Danube region. 

In May 2024, we successfully installed our inland simulator at TMLG which later got CESNI certified by the Slovakian ministry of transport. The simulator’s cutting-edge technology and immersive training environment will undoubtedly enhance the skills and expertise of maritime professionals across the region. This investment marks an expansion of VSTEP’s reach, enabling us to bring the power of simulation-based learning to an even wider audience.  

I’m proud of the potential of our products to enable simulation-based learning throughout the region. It’s incredibly satisfying to see us extend our leadership in inland navigation and support more companies in enhancing their maritime training capabilities.”
